    Hi all, i went to my emergency appointment at the dentist today about my wisdom tooth and he gave me some anti-biotics for the pain. I have to take 3 capsules (500mg) a day for 5 days.

    I was wondering if it was ok to take anti-biotics (Amoxicillian) whilst SSing or if it would be better to do SS+/810 or move upto the 1200cals step. It doesn't state if i have to take it with food.

    I would prefer to stay on SS (because its for my tooth ache and not because i'm unwell) but i dont want the anti-biotics to upset my stomach.

    I would appreciate any advice and suggestions.

    Thanks in advance for your replies :) xx

    ps. i cant really eat any solid food anyway because of my tooth.

    Does it say to take on an empty stomach or after food?

    If you have to take with/after food then try having it with your shake to see how you feel. If you feel unwell then you might need to add a little food.

    Take Care and Glad your tooth is getting sorted xx

    just found this

    Taking the Medicine

    The most effective way to swallow amoxicillin is probably on an empty stomach with a full eight-ounce glass of water. That usually means at least one hour before eating or two hours after food.

    from this site

    Amoxicillin

    I have contacted my local chemist and they said it makes no difference if you take it with or without food. So i have taken one now and will have my shake in an hour or so.

    Does anyone know if you have to take it every 5 or 6 hours, i'm not sure.

    Sorry about all the quesions but i get very anxious and panicy when it comes to taking medication.

    Thanks xx
